Who is Willem Engel?
Willem Engel is the leader of the Dutch ‘Virus Truth’ (viruswaarheid) movement that advocates against governmental coronavirus measures.
Not to mention, Engel is a staunch supporter of Russian President Putin and its invasion of Ukraine.
The Dutch public prosecution office already incited an investigation against Engel in January based on a petition signed by 22,000 individuals.
The petition raised concerns that Engel was involved in calls to civil unrest, the spreading of medical misinformation and posed a high potential to commit terrorist acts.
